Does Silver Surfer board powers him like in the movie FF2?

No. He doesn't need it to do ANYTHING that he normaly does .. like flight. he doesn't need the board to fly. It simply aids him.

Actually... He does need the board to fly and it responds to his mental commands.

Otherwise, yeah Surfer's powers come from within him.

No he does not need the board to fly. It just keeps him from expending his own energy to fly.

Where's that?

I've seen a half dozen times where he's separated from his board by villains who think his power comes from it and he corrects them by saying it's merely his mode of transporation. This was especially memorial when he fought the Runner and directly compared his board to Runner's legs.

Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe "Although the Silver Surfer could utilize his vast cosmic power for unaided propulsion, he generally employs his surfboard to fly since it does not require any of his personal energy to operate"

I guess when he fought the runner, he realized that his speed wouldn't help him and he wanted to save his energy for battle rather than flight.

I'm just going off having never seen him fly unaided without his board.

but if that's what the OHotMU says then...

Yeah, I know what your saying. I guess maybe it would take so much of his energy that it just isn't worth it.

Even though surfer can fly without his board why should he. He looks much cooloer on it and he couldnt be called the silver surfer. lol

Well, to be accurate, the SS does use a healthy amount of Sex Wax on his board, thus allowing him a greater degree of resistance to mass and velocity, as well as space debris...fyi

he can levitate or expell cosmic energies using the solar winds to fly without the board

Yes Silver Surfer can't fly without board, can he have the power without the board ?

@jigen879: I remember seeing him fly before without his board plus flight is a simple feat in the marvel universe. Why somebody his class with the cosmic powers would be hindered by something like that is just crazy talk.

@arthurkerr:

no indeed, but a friend of mine says that it does not fly off the board at the speed of light, this is true?

no table, he still has the power? Because my friend told me that when he was tied to the Earth, this was because the table was tied to the earth, is not it?

But it is still true that many people are overrated, every fan invents feats that do not exist, or he reads things that they no

for example, in infinity crusaide, Silver might die because he had absorbed a small infinitesimal part of the energy of the sun, beyond which he would die

I remember when Doom stole his energy and he floated in space dying and the light of a single star did bring him back to life. From that simple spark he was able to defeat what we found out to be a doombot and regain the rest of his power.

So really it is all up to the writer and is the story no pun to Thor (worthy) or not for the Silver Surfer is one of Marvels greatest adventure heroes and that my friend is what makes him the best of all heroes.

His spirit and his zest to go out and explore to walk into the dark room and see what lay in the deepest darkest most hellish of places. I for one hope when they do a movie they do the surfer justice and not put his powers in a board but in himself. To be a force to be the Silver Surfer. When planets see this figure coming they cringe in fear for a reason.
